Oblix buying Confluent

Looselycoupled on reasons why Oblix choose Confluent :

Oblix says enterprises get control of identity management before they begin managing web services. It bought Confluent so it can offer both:

-Customers invariably have ID management installed before they look at managing services
-Oblix is gambling that its 130+ customers will be happy to buy Confluent's offering
-Confluent has just 4 live customers. Two-thirds of its staff are to leave

This is continuation of the web services management vendors consolidation. Next in line should be WestGlobal, Infravio and Amberpoint
